During a recent trip on a dodgy Greyhound coach to visit family in Zimbabwe, I learned some rather poignant lessons about the importance of looking past the trivial business of daily life, and peered past man-made hype to what really matters. Shout out to Africa's busiest border post. It's all love, Beitbridge! Music Credits: Music by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Music licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0

8: Delusions feat. Toro Orero

7/10/2016
More
This episode of #AndilesTake explores the importance of delusion, and it features the live wire that the Toro Orero, a Nigerian-born Managing Partner of Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm, DraperDarkFlow. One of the key things Toro and his partners at DraperDarkFlow look for in a startup founder that they might invest in is a sense of delusion. He believes that being a little nuts is often a good indicator that someone has what it takes to change the world. I'm totally with it!...

BONUS: In Conversation With Andre Blaze Henshaw

6/24/2016
More
As promised in Episode 7 of the #AndilesTake podcast, this is the uncut conversation I (Andile Masuku) had with Nigeria's inimitable Andre "Blaze" Henshaw. Andre is easily one of Africa’s leading broadcasting talents. While he's probably most famous for his work on Nigerian public radio, and hosting primetime extravaganza’s like Nigeria’s Got Talent on television, it’s his work on the My Africa podcast (available on iTunes) that got me sensing a sort of kinship with him. He launched the...

7: So Much To Say... Not! feat. Andre Blaze Henshaw & PJ Lebea

6/9/2016
More
So, I’ve decided to pick up where I left off in terms of the audio journal I started just over 18 months ago. Technically, this is Episode 1 of the 2nd Season of the #AndilesTake podcast series. Except as you’ll gather in this instalment, I’m still trying to figure out what it is I’m actually trying to say, and why. I feel like once I properly get my thumb on that, the name of the podcast will change. In the meantime, consider this a personal invitation to join me in discovering what...

4: Presenting Like A Pro feat. Marc Chase, Alex Granger & Beth-Ann Galvin

9/17/2015

The gift of speech is a hugely underrated blessing. I'm at the stage in my life-- personal and career-wise, where I've developed an awareness for the potential of what comes out of my mouth to either kill or heal, build or destroy. In this episode of #AndilesTake, I look back on the influences that have shaped the broadcaster I am today, share what fuels my sense of purpose as a communicator, and reflect on what inspires me not just to keep raising my game as a pro, but also cherish the...

3: Craftsmanship vs. Entrepreneurship (Part 2) feat. Unathi Msengana & Asanda Madyibi

7/28/2015
More
This is the second and final part of my take on the transition from craftsmanship to entrepreneurship featuring Unathi Msengana and Asanda Madyibi. Unathi Msengana is a well-loved South African media personality and business woman (Musician, Metro FM DJ, Idols South Africa Judge and Television Producer) who is easily one of the most relevant and, indeed, most bankable entities in the Africa’s fickle entertainment industry. While, Asanda Madyibi is an incredibly talented fashion designer to...

Unathi Msengana is a well-loved South African media personality and business woman (Musician, Metro FM DJ, Idols South Africa Judge and Television Producer) who is easily one of the most relevant and, indeed, most bankable entities in the Africa's fickle entertainment industry. While, Asanda Madyibi is an incredibly talented fashion designer to the stars whose garments have graced catwalks around the world. Unathi, Asanda and I go way back, but not quite as far back as their friendship....

6: Fruit of the Year 2015

5/14/2015
More
Join me in celebrating the mango! *cue fireworks* In this feature I contrast the amazing qualities of 2015's "Fruit of the Year" with the dodgy quality of customer service in South African supermarkets. While it's been a remarkable year for the mango, public outrage at poor customer service in South Africa continues to grow (with significant amounts of frustration being aimed at the big supermarket chains). Is it possible that there are lessons the supermarket industry could learn from the...

1: Do What You Love feat. The Muffinz (Workers' Day Special)

4/30/2015

The wait is over. The Muffinz have finally released their much-anticipated sophomore album, "Do What You Love"-- following the success of their critically-acclaimed, award-winning debut, "Have You Heard" in 2012. After touring widely since the release of their first album (selling out venues like New York's famous Apollo Theatre along the way), and sharing the stage with legendary artists like Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Oliver Mtukudzi (who features on their latest album), I asked them to...

5: Ashes To Ashes

After letting the hype around the recent launch of eTV's new drama series, "Ashes to Ashes" die down, I finally decided to watch the first episode of the show online to see what all the fuss was about, and give you my candid first impressions. Believe it or not, watching the show got me thinking deeply about some important things-- like how it seems we black folks struggle to master the dynamics of generational wealth-creation and issues of legacy. Many thanks to the awesome contributors...
